Switzerland
I'm an ongoing scientific illustrator studying Scientific Visualization at the ZHdK in Zurich and I'm currently in my second year of studies after I studied Biology for five semesters at the UZH in Zurich. Though I study and live most of the week in a flat in Zurich with my roomies, I spend most of my weekends and holidays at home in Zernez in the middle of the Engadin valley.

My interests are biology, especially zoology, paleontology and evolution, since I always loved to know about nature and it's inhabitants. I'm also interested in medicine, history (Vikings, Germans, Romans, Rhaetians and other ancient cultures), enviromental science and geoscience ranging from Earth to extraplanetar systems. I also keep pets (birds, fish, amphibians), go hunt, hike and dive. It's safe to say that I got a very vast field of interests.
One of my other great passions besides of science are sci-fi and gaming, meaning that I'm a sucker for the Aliens (AvP) and the Halo franchise. Though I tend to draw a lot of fanart in my spare time, I'm not one of those weird fangirls. I'm quite a reasonable fan.
If you look at my gallery, you'll mostly find either scientific stuff like paleontology or zoology I do at the university or sci-fi and fanart I do in my spare time :)

My mother tongue is Rumansh but I speak German fluently as well and I'm quite good with English. I also understand a good part from French and Italian and to a certain degree Spanish. As you see, communication shouldn't be a problem if you do want to speak about my art. Comments of any kind are welcomed! :D

Fair use: You are free to spread my art and show it wherever you want, as long as you're not selling or making profit with it. However I'd then like you to credit me for it by linking to my profile or at least mention my name. Ask me first, if you want to use parts of my art for your own non-profit artistic projects (collage). Do not trace my art, use my art as a base, remove my signature from my art or pretend it to be your own art.
Interests
First things first: I totally forgot to do a shoutout for :icongluebandit: for drawing me as a Sangheili. It was really cool hanging with you in your stream and it was even more awesome you took my pic in order to draw me as a Sangheili (really, how cool is that?!) and sadly I forgot to mention it due to me being busy. Shame on me :(
I think me and Iyst turned out very accurate, as far as it goes to be drawn as a hinge-head, so check it out and give it some love!

Next thing is that I got my final driver's license for sure, since according to the teachers supervising me, my driving skills are flawless *insert Halo2 quote*. But seriously, it seems like I am indeed a really careful driver that pays attention to her surroundings and can also manage to drive on snow (it would be a shame if not, me coming from the mountains of Grisons...). So yeah, no more shit taking anymore from my parents nagging at my driving ;P

Now sadly my laptop died this weekend and that's a shame considering how well it served me in the past six years and that's a pretty long life for a laptop. It never gave me any problems, even though I used it almost daily during those six years. So if you happen to search for an enduring laptop, pick a HP Probook 4520s. It's really worth the money!
I got all my files extracted from it, so nothing is lost but for now I need to work on a Mac until I can afford a new laptop. It's a bit annoying, since I hate Macs and the way they work but it's about time I get used to it before we start with 3D in college.

And last but not least, I hope you haven't felt flooded by my last years college works I finally was able to submit, since there'll be more, especially since I got sick again and need to hang in bad all day. It's about time, since I'm working on my portfolio for Iceland that I got to send in at the 7. April. So there probably won't be much Halo stuff this month but lots of scientific stuff instead. Keep an eye on it, if you happen to see something you like. I'd appreciate it =)
